Woman discovers she won $1 million lottery prize thanks to checking her email
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE/Gray News) - A Kentucky woman is $1 million richer after a surprise lottery win to end the month of May.
Her ticket didn’t match the Powerball number, but it did match the other five numbers called for the $1 million prize.
“I’ve played for years,” she said, admitting to officials she won $200 two months ago and likes purchasing her tickets online.
The woman said she found out she had a winning ticket while looking through her emails and finding a notification from the Kentucky Lottery.
“I literally was like no way,” she said. “I am just floored.”
The woman informed her husband about the win and the two confirmed the prize with lottery officials.
After taxes, the lucky winner walked away with a $715,000 check, according to the Kentucky Lottery.
The couple said they plan on using the money to do some things around the house and travel.
